The Linen Closet

Okay I have officially finished one area and it feels good.  Here is what it looks like now.
No I am not going to show you the before picture again because I can't handle any more humiliation. As I searched good ways to organize closets I saw bins come up more than once. At first I didn't like the idea but the more I thought about it the more I did like it. Here are the reasons I like it:
  1. It maximizes space allowing you to go higher on your shelves.
  2. It really narrows down the saying "a place fore everything and everything in it's place." Instead of something belonging just in the linen closet it now belongs in the linen closet on the bottom shelf in the basket for bathing products.  
  3. It will eliminate future instances of me not finding what I am looking for, thinking we are out of it and buying more. 
  4. It helps me see better what we do need and what we are running low on so I can start shopping the sales to stock back up.
All in all I am very happy with how this turned out.  I bought just about all my baskets at the dollar store and the big one on the bottom I bought on sale for only $3.  So this closet makeover cost me less than $10 which feels really nice.

p.s. Voting for the yummiest cake pop has been dismal, please go vote if you haven't.  Someone else is counting on you to help them win.
